Acer and Intel Sponsor IGC’s Tournament for Diversity in Brazil – The Esports Observer

Gamers Club, a platform owned by Immortals Gaming Club (IGC) in Latin America, announced on Tuesday the second edition of its Pride Cup, a tournament for players from the LGBTQ+ community. The event will feature Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO), Valorant, and League of Legends (LoL) competitions, with Intel and Acer (promoting its brand Predator) serving as sponsors, and with the support of LoL and Valorant publisher Riot Games.

The event will also feature content to address the importance of minorities in esports and about diversity in society. The initiative is handled by the Gamers Club Diversity Committee, which “aims to include and value minorities in electronic sports, and be a catalyst, in addition, to serve as a point of reference for many young people who feel underrepresented in the gaming community.”

Players can register from May 18 and will go through verification to validate the participants’ self-declaration on the registering form. According to Gamers Club, this will be done to “ensure the safety of the players.” The final stages of the Pride Cup will be broadcast on Gamers Club’s channel on Twitch. The prize pool adds up to $15K BRL (roughly $2.85K USD).
